Estate Planning involves protecting and increasing your cash flow. If you own a home, have children, own a business, need to lower your taxes, or have been recently married/divorced, then this applies to you. My associate and I have over 23 years experience between us. There is no estate too small or too large for us to handle. If you have a business or rental properties, we can limit your liability and possibly save you money on your insurance costs. Estate planning also includes reducing the amount you pay in personal income tax, business tax, capitol gains tax, estate taxes, or any other taxes. We can make sure that when you die, all of your assets go to your intended family members, and not to the government or an unwelcome family member. This will also potentially save your heirs tens of thousands of dollars in probate fees. We can help you create wills, trusts, power of attorneys, health care directives (living wills), deed transfers, guardianships, and LLC's. Finally, estate planning also includes increasing your current wealth and planning your retirement through the use of various tax loopholes and investments.
I enjoy the practice of law because it gives me an opportunity to help people who are being taken advantage of by the government. Whether it is abuse by the police on a criminal charge, or keeping you from over paying taxes to the IRS; it is my pleasure to help you. This translates into the way I run my practice: built with customer service as a top priority. Many attorneys will charge you to speak to them, email them, etc.; which is assuming you can get a hold of them in the first place. That is not the way I operate.
What sets me apart from other attorneys is that I offer a MORE PERSONALIZED ATTORNEY EXPERIENCE. In 2012 I decided to start my own law firm because I did not like the way other law firms treated their clients. The top complaints from clients at those firms were that the attorney did not listen to them or return their calls. I do not think that is an appropriate way to run a business, no matter what type of business you have. Therefore, I started my practice with the idea that every client, and even potential clients, should be treated as if they matter. I promise to answer your calls, texts, and emails. I will listen to your concerns and treat you like a human being. I believe that questions are a natural part of the process and I will not charge you to answer relevant questions. This business model has given me a great deal of satisfaction, and has resulted in many happy clients (you can see some of their reviews on my Yelp page at: http://www.yelp.com/biz/l aw-office-of-phil-shekerl ian-irvine).
If you or anyone you know has any legal questions or concerns, please contact me. My initial consultation is free. After that I charged a fixed fee, so you will know what you are getting into from the start.
